Lake Level Lawsuit Update

Water Conservation

The Township Board of Supervisors would like for our residents to be aware of  the ongoing process concerning the White Bear Lake Level lawsuit. At the end of the summer (2021), the Township received notification from The Department of Natural Resources regarding the lake level actually falling beneath its statutorily mandated minimum of 923.5 feet (MSL 1912). As is defined within the statute, a residential irrigation ban is triggered. However, because the Township has contested the case, the DNR has recognized our position and has requested (not required) a residential irrigation ban within the Township. In practical terms what does this mean for our residents over the next 60 days? Very little, as your lawns are covered by a foot of snow and ice. In the long term, the DNR is asking us to take into consideration the impacts the drought had on the area this last year, and do our best to curb our water usage for irrigation until the lake has rebounded to a healthier level. The Board would like to ask for everyone’s cooperation this spring and summer as we as a community voluntarily adhere to existent watering restrictions rather than imposed bans. The lake is a major amenity to us all, therefore we all have a responsibility to preserve it! Further information will be available as we get into the spring and summer months.
